Medically Managed Weight Loss

Balancing hormones, maintaining healthy younger looking skin, and maintaining a healthy weight are all important in preventing normal signs of aging. Weight loss often becomes a struggle as we age. Therefore, my approach to weight loss is assessing each individual and determining a program that will fit that individual’s life-style and weight loss goals. Call to learn more about:

MIC Diet

MIC injections in combination with a low carbohydrate, healthy protein diet, with the right mix of fruits and vegetables, is a safe option for a healthy weight loss. An initial consult with weekly MIC injections makes this medically managed weight loss program a success for many patients. Patients feel great on the program and are happy to see the fat melting away.

A naturally occurring amino acid which acts as a lipotropic agent to speed up removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat buildup in the body. Methionine also helps prevent or relieve fatigue and aids in prevention of skin and nail problems. Moreover, the amino acid methionine is also a great antioxidant as the sulfur it supplies inactivates free radicals. Studies seem to show benefits for patients with depression, arthritis, and chronic liver disease (although these claims are still under investigation). Some studies have also indicated that methionine might improve memory recall. Other reported benefits of methionine include improvement of skin tone, skin elasticity, nails, and hair, as well as improvement of cardiovascular and muscular functions through its role in the production of creatine. It has also been studied in relation to chronic depression, pancreatitis, and Parkinson’s disease.

Inositol is part of the vitamin B complex. As a mild lipotropic agent, it aids in weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down or emulsifying fats in the body. Inositol is also vital for hair growth, and, as a component of lecithin, helps to prevent high cholesterol and the hardening of the arteries caused by cholesterol buildup. It has also been said to have a calming effect on the nervous system, and is being studied as a possible treatment for depression, panic attacks, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

Also part of the vitamin B family. It aids the utilization of fats in the body and supports weight loss. Choline assists in the emulsifying of fats and cholesterol in the body by helping to form smaller fat globules in the blood and daiding the transport of fats through smaller channels out of the cells. It also helps with general body detoxification by “decongestion” the liver of excess fats. Choline is also helpful for fatigue because when choline is depleted in the body, fat metabolism and utilization may be decreased. Choline is currently being studied as a natural treatment for NASH and Fatty Liver.

B-12 has been known to boost energy for years. In my experience, patients benefit even if they are not deficient in B-12. The B-12 in the MIC Ultra injection also activates the other ingredients and their fat reduction properties.
